Come Sunday - the Music of Duke Ellington
"Come Sunday gives the listener an idea of the wide scope of my grandfather's work. Cynthia's renditions are very refreshing and bring yet another color to the palette!" - Mercedes Ellington "Come Sunday is the boundary-pushing exploration of a singer-as-instrumentalist surveying the Ellington scene and leaving her own distinctive imprint in the sands of time. Every jazz musician has at one time or another paid tribute to Duke, each applying their own attitude and style. Cynthia holds her own and stakes her own claim. The 13 tracks of well-known songs comprise a mix of instrumental players and arrangements with tempi ranging from the very lively opener of "It Don't Mean A Thing..." to ruminative ballads like "Lush Life." This Come Sunday collection is a worthy encore or next chapter in Cynthia's musical journey." - Devra Hall Levy.
